Year-round daylight saving time? Trump is on board with Rubio’s idea

U.S. Sen Marco Rubio’s bill to make Daylight Saving Time year-round got a boost Monday from President Trump.

“Making Daylight Saving Time permanent is O.K. with me!” Trump said in a tweet, giving a presidential thumbs up to Rubio’s proposal to keep the clocks moved forward permanently.

It was unclear whether Trump’s endorsement of the idea of permanent DST, if not Rubio’s bill specifically, would help or hurt the Sunshine Protection Act.

Responses to the tweet have included reflective opposition to a Trump idea, as well as at least one Trump critic tweeting, “Finally we agree!”
